Taking place on the final Friday of each month, Drag Wars is a Ru Paul’s Drag Race-style contest, hosted by Caluzzi comedy duo Kita Mean and Anita Wigl’it!

Contestants include drag queens, drag kings and bio-drags (a performer who drags in their assigned gender). The winner is selected entirely by the audience, who award their favourite performer by throwing Drag Wars bills (reminiscent of Monopoly money) at them. The event usually sells out, so be there be 9pm for the 9.30pm show.
